Why This Must Be Read: This fic beautifully fits into the fifth season of the new Doctor Who and with a deft touches shows the Eleventh Doctor's ambiguous relationship with Amy; he has an affection for her he doesn't quite admit, even to himself, he wants her to be happy, and he wants him to be the thing making her happy, even when he doesn't.

You Desired my attention by lit_chick08, PG13

Fandom Category: The Vampire Diaries
Pairing: Katherine Pierce(Katerina Petrova)/Stefan Salvatore
Fic Title: You Desired my attention
Author: lit_chick08

Rating/Warning(s): PG13
Genre: romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I have a soft spot for backstory fics and this one is just magical. There's a doomed feeling you get reading the blossoming of the doomed love-story between corrupted, vicious vampire Katherine and pure, innocent Stefan, specially since this story does not sugarcoat anything. Katherine is as petty, frivolous and selfish as her TVversion is, and Stefan so unexperienced and naive than he falls easily for her depections, never daring to even doubt that his vixen is not an untouched maiden. Really, you should read this even only to journey a little inside HumanStefan mind, because here's an admirable accuracy to how a young man of his time would approach women and sexuality.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Fluff
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I've been looking for good Kensi/Deeks, and this adorable fic delivers. It's sweet without being sappy. It's hard to pick my favorite bit to quote, since it's all so in-character and funny, but I'll try to give you an excerpt:

"Also, I keep the important things in here.”

“Like a team of ninjas?”

“Like my comic book collection.”

“No way,” he said when she opened a panel and showed him her collection, “This is insane. It’s…it’s bigger than mine.”

“I’m sure that’s a problem you often have.”
